    Just spoke with Micky from Estee Lauder Manhasset and she gave me some wonderful information for our overseas friends.

    Estee Lauder Corp. has given permission for orders to be taken and solids/compacts to be shipped directly from the United States to collectors overseas.

    I would imagine you can place advance orders, but that's probably up to the individual stores. At least now it's a little easier to purchase the one's you love, even if they never get to your Country. This might also make a difference in the price you pay. Micky also stated you will not have to pay tax. Am not sure if that means your VAT or what…you would have to check with her on that one. /smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    That is good news for lots of people who don't have anyone over there looking out for them and sending solids on. We may not have to pay the state sales tax but we will still have to pay vat at 17.5% as anything over £35 value is taxed.

    Michele,

    Thanks for passing on the information on to all of us. I am sure that makes things easier for collectors overseas.

    Good stuff! I think our stores over here will now suffer the consequences of losing the clientele. Still, maybe that will make them lower their prices which is always a good thing! <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

    Hi Lisa –

    I think it will help them most in that they won't have to use eBay as a medium for buying the new solids. Plus, they'll be dealing directly with a retailer, so if there's any problem it can be rectified; whereas with eBay, you're sort of left to straighten it out with the seller all by yourself.

    The VAT, if applicable, would be absorbed by the fact that they'll still pay lower prices than on eBay. Anyone agree? (Not Sandra. She never agrees with anything. <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> )

    Hi Nancy –

    What does £35 equal in US dollars? And why 17.5% VAT? Isn't that a little bit steep? What does it go towards?

    Nancy, it goes to all those government officials 'trips' – flying first class of course with all the trimmings! Just ask Tony Blair.
